Singer, Songwriter & Guitarist Kwanza Jones Releases “Not A Breakup Song”

(Los Angeles, CA – June 7, 2010) In late 2009 Kwanza released her first single/music video “Everything Around You (I’m not Happy)” off her forthcoming LP Supercharged! (Summer 2010) which received heavy viral rotation and was featured on Yahoo’s Entertainment Channel and BET’s Centric network.. The song was a personal tale about romance gone awry, which drew comparisons to India.Arie and Alicia Keys. The second single “Not a Breakup Song” is a conversation starter, giving fans a little bit of rock, a whole lot of pop and providing an anthem for the under-appreciated. “Not a Breakup Song” was the logical next single following the theme of unhappiness, giving an ultimatum and ultimately a wake-up call. She says “If you’re not happy do something about it! I don’t believe the difficult things are better left unsaid. But, I know it can be hard to say what you really want. Whether you’re thinking of breaking-up with your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your hairstylist or your mechanic… ‘Not a Breakup Song’ is your go-to guide.“
